I believe Super Mario will end up being your "Free" game... If that's the case you could simply return RE:R and they will refund you and it will not affect the B2G1 free deal.


I don't think it works that way?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I actually did this for the Vita B2G1 and it worked. If you check your invoice and as long as they did not take the promo from each game it will work. The same with the WiFi Vita and "free" 4GB memory card. I returned the memory card and got credited back the $20 and still got the $20 promo they gave out.

It's not something I set out to do, but it worked out in both instances... I did not want one of the games I got and it was not the "free" game, so I returned it and got refunded. I wanted the 32GB card, so I returned the 4GB and got refunded. I guess YMMV, but I know from personal experience that it has worked in the past.

I don't know what happened in your case but B2G1 frees get prorated per game and when you return a game you only get the proration back.

e.g. 3 three $60 games, if you return one, you get $40 back.

Yep, I see a discount on each game on my b2g1 order. None of the games are "free".

I don't know why, but on my Vita B2G1 the games were priced normally and below the total was section for "Promo Applied" and then minus the amount of the "free game". It may have been because my order included items other than the games themselves, but I don't know. I was not trying to abuse the system, I just had a change of heart on one of the games so I returned it.

After mulling over this sale for a few days, I think there's only one game that I'd want (RE:R), and I wouldn't mind getting two other games to sell in an effort to recoup the cost, but is there anything in this sale besides Tales of the Abyss (:3ds:) that would be an easy item to sell? I tried buying two copies of TotA, but Amazon says I'm limited to one copy. :\

Not worth it to try. I am pretty sure it is explicitly stated in many places they don't PM websites.

You may be able to try and get them to price match target's but that is YMMV.

Need input for a 3rd game. Getting Raymon origins (ps3) and Metal gear solid HD (360). I need something in that price range, I also have a wii and a 3ds. I think my problem comes with the fact that I am planning on getting tales of grace f and(or) Xenoxblade Chronicles soon, so I don't wanna get anything heavy duty. Rayman I will play casually with the wife in her free time, and Metal Gear is more nostalgia related.

Is it really? The Show usually takes a few months to dip down to what the savings are here and baseball season is starting, Abyss might not really come down (including used) and if it does it could take a year or two like formerly rare DS RPG's, and you get a lot with Red Dead Complete which I don't believe has had any crazy deals yet (lowest on Amazon was $10 off the current MSRP).

I see $36, which doesn't put it far from the net savings here regardless. Also, I meant the current MSRP when I said the lowest was $10 off ($30).

Getting The Show and Abyss for that same net price, however, is well worth it and the bonus of a content heavy game+DLC like Red Dead makes me wonder how that's a terrible deal at this point in time, that's all. Factor in the possibility of free shipping/no tax for some people, and I'd want to buy that combo myself if I didn't already own two of the games.

Doubtful, that was before the target sale was even live. You are welcome to try, and they may honor it, but I am sure it will flag your account. Amazon has some of the BEST customer service out there, and I really wouldn't want to take advantage of them.

What you could do is, just rebuy the two games you got with the third you want, then return the ones you purchased last saturday. And if you opened them already I am sure you can just return the new ones you will get.

they don't take kindly to too many returns. My personal theory is that returns are the #1 reason to get banned. Especially "defective" returns.

I actually bought 2 of the 19.99 games last week and considered chatting with them but I figure it's not worth the hassle.

Why not get the 3DS version of Tales of the Abyss? That way you can get your Tales fix, and in all honesty, Xenoblade will last you a long time and is claimed to be the best JRPG of this generation. I really want Tales of Graces f, but if I had to choose, I'd pick up Xenoblade over it. Besides, by the time you finish Xenoblade, Graces will have dropped in price on Amazon or somewhere else (whether for a sale or permanent price drop).

I was thinking of getting tales, but I am not sure how much I will actually play it. I haven't touched my 3ds since last summer. Maybe i just need a good game for it, but who knows. I may well do that. At the very least I can probably trade it someplace to make back most of what I paid for it.

Because you're getting a $60 game with two $40 games. You'd maximize your savings with either getting three $40 games or three $60 games. Mixing and matching hurts the overall savings.

Basically paying 33 dollars a game. That is a great saving for the 60 dollar game but terrible for the two 40s. If you got 3 40 dollar games, you would end up doubling your savings on the 40 dollar games, saving close to 14 dollar apiece.
